Hamilton police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man wanted in connection with a break and enter in the city’s Westdale neighbourhood.
On Monday night, investigators say a male entered a student house located on Broadway Avenue, between Sussex and Main Street West, without consent.
According to police, a resident inside the house heard the sound of the front door and encountered the male inside, who then fled the area.
Police are also looking into four other break and enters that occurred in the Westdale area, all occurring within a five day period. Investigators say at this time, they cannot confirm whether the incidents are related.
Police are describing the suspect as having a medium build, wearing a black hooded jacket (with white embroidery on the left chest area), blue jeans (with a red mark or patch on the left thigh area) and black shoes, and carrying a backpack.
Police are looking to speak with witnesses and are asking for more video surveillance that could help them identify the suspect, by calling investigators at 905-546-4725.
